Manny Being A Steroid User?

Huge news in the baseball world today, as it was announced that Manny Ramirez of the Los Angeles Dodgers will be suspended for 50 games for a "performance enhancing" drug.
Ramirez is easily the best know player to get caught up in the steroid era, at least officially. Rafael Palmiero did fail a drug test when the penalty was only 25 games for a first offense, but even he was not of the same caliber as Manny.
Other big names, such as Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire have been implicated, but the failed test for Ramirez is quite possibly the first earth shattering proof in Major League Baseball.
Will this hurt Manny's reputation? Will Manny care? I bet Alex Rodriguez is somewhere smiling right now.
